Shana and the Boom Run Girls on ESPN 2!

Hello everybody! ESPN 2 will be airing last Summer's STIHL Timbersport Series this weekend! I won't tell you how it goes, but I do win a few medals. :) The boom runners competed at the Decatur, Alabama and Stillwater, Minnesota venues. Here are the segments:

Sunday December 17th
3:00pm – 5:30pm EASTERN
The same segments will be aired again:
Tuesday December 19th
5:00 – 5:30am
2:00 – 3:00pm EASTERN
Friday December 22nd
2:00pm – 4:00pm EASTERN

Keep in mind they will go back and fourth between the women's boom running and all of the men's events. So you will have to stay tuned the entire time to see the ladies. But it's exciting stuff to watch!

Shana in Newsweek Magazine This Week!

I am featured (I believe it is just a brief blurb) in this week’s Newsweek Magazine! It is the one with “Will Bush Listen?” on the cover (how ironic). If you flip to the story about genetic testing “Peering into the Future: Genetic Testing” I should have a few quotes there. I did quite a long interview with them. Although, if it is anything like my spot on the Tonight Show… I’m not expecting much. :) Part of the article can be found online:

If you read the article and have any questions or comments for me about Huntington ’s disease, please let me know.
